The Orchards

As of 16 September, Meadgate Church took ownership of The Orchards.  Rev Canon Tim Ball comments:

At the start of it all the people of Meadgate church were invited to ‘Dare to Dream. They did and now owning the Orchards building completes a dream, and begins a new one. We are elated at all that has been achieved by the Church through prayer and vision, hard work and faith to believe that it could be done. We face new challenges in the future, but we face them knowing that in all that has gone before God has been faithfully with us.

 

Over the years there have been particular people leading the way. Those who first conceived of it; Those who have faithfully and diligently prayed for it; Those who cleaned painted and built it; those who advocated for it; those who have negotiated it; those who did the financial planning and those who have given to it. We are so grateful to God for them all.

 

Coronavirus Update

At Meadgate Church, we are currently holding an online service each Sunday morning at 10:30. We will resume our normal Sunday services from 6th December.

 

The Orchards Cafe is currently shut and will reopen Cafe on Wednesday 2nd December.

 

Meadgate Church is a thriving, friendly church in the middle of the community of Meadgate in Great Baddow. Everyone is welcome to join us whether you've been going to church for years, haven't been for a while, or are just interested in finding out more. On a Sunday we have three services that cater for all tastes, but Meadgate Church doesn't end on Sunday - you can normally find something going on everyday of the week and you'll find details of all that we do on this website. We hope you'll drop by and find a non-threatening, warm and welcoming atmosphere.  We're just a bunch of people trying to follow the example Jesus set for us - hence our mission statement is "Aiming to be like Jesus."
